    Did about three hours of troubleshooting. Swapped in the summit receiver from another truck and problem persisted. Ruled out a problem with the mini-servo itself by swapping channels around and it...

    Hello I recently did a complete tear down of my sons summit after the esc smoked, motor died and receiver quit. It was time. Everything electronically is new and shiny and stock except the savox...

    Bad servos on this beast make it go crazy. I lost a steering servo and everything goes completely nuts. I thought the esc was bad, maybe the receiver and even tried rebinding. It was possessed. Stock...

    Water simply seems to wreck tires in my limited experience regardless of cutting holes. My boys like water (nothing too deep) so on my replacement set I actually taped off the two holes in the rims...

    Oh oops I just realized there is a separate Slash 4x4 forum. Maybe thats why there are no replies. Moderators do you want to move it over there or should I repost it there? Thanks.

    Managed to bust the rear bulkhead today (part 7429). Back wheel barely caught a stump I was driving by. Ripped the hinge pin assembly right off. Too bad it was not just the a-arm. Anyway because of...

    Appreciate the input. I will check the rears when I get the truck back and see if the shop has come up with anything and perhaps email Traxxas. I am hopeful it is just a fluke and not going to be...

    My boys were running it full throttle on two 2s lipo's back and forth with hard turns. The axles shattered in the middle so I assume they twisted. Joints looked ok. At least one of them had 3...
